Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - This is a great recipe for my fellow potato lovers! I wanted to make a potato soup that was quick and easy for a first course at dinner or light lunch. Enjoy!

Ingredients: (Makes 6 to 8 one-cup servings)

6 medium potatoes

2 medium onions

5 cups chicken or vegetable stock, heated

1/2 cup milk, heated

1/2 cup water, heated

1 1/2 tbsp each: butter, olive oil

1 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley, plus extra

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Instructions:

Peel and dice potatoes and chop onions. In a large stock pot heat olive oil on medium heat then add butter. Once butter has melted add potatoes, onions and the chopped parsley. Cover with a lid and cook until potatoes are soft and onions are translucent (make sure not to brown). Add heated stock, milk and water and season with salt, pepper and heat on medium high. Cover with a lid and let cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook uncovered for an additional 10 to 12 minutes. Remove one cup of the soup and set aside.

Remove pot from heat and using and immersion blender, cream soup until smooth. Pour reserved soup back into pot, add nutmeg and adjust salt and pepper to taste. Heat on medium for a few minutes before serving. Ladle into bowls and garnish with extra parsley.
